My name is Jessica Kelley. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Alabama. I started working in psychiatric hospital settings at age 18 and have loved helping people ever since! I graduated from California Baptist University in 2013. I have worked in several states as I transfer with my enlisted-military husband and our two children.
Most of my counseling experience has been in high-crisis settings with adolescents, young adults, and their families. I have worked with families and individuals experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, psychosis, abuse/neglect, parenting struggles, stress, and relationship conflicts.
I would describe my approach as supportive, empathetic, warm, goal oriented, and client centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Solution focused therapy, Motivational interviewing, and life coaching approaches in sessions but my personal style is very laid-back and genuine. I don’t throw fancy academic language around or spout off terminology that most people don’t use, but I will be real; a real person who really cares!
I won’t tell you what to do, but I will give you feedback, suggestions, and perspective to help you make the best decisions for you and your situation. I encourage my clients to be vocal about their needs and what they hope to get out of therapy.
I look forward to hearing from you!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Family conflicts
- Parenting issues
I also have experience in LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

Jessica could not have been more helpful or enjoyable to work with. She is patient, thoughtful, and so relatable, yet challenging in the best way that I certainly needed! She definitely did not just agree with me or “try to make me feel good,” but she asked tough questions and challenged me to dig deeply and make strides in the direction I wanted to go in. I am thankful for her and for the weeks I benefited from her wisdom and experience. I will not hesitate to seek out her services again in the future.
I have been extremely pleased with our sessions! Mrs. Kelley is very professional and really fits the style of therapy I was looking for.
Jessica is a wonderful human being.
Jessica is awesome! She makes you feel super comfortable and it's almost like talking to your best friend every week. She offers great insight and has been so helpful in encouraging me as I rebuild my life! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
